Last week, José Mourinho and Maurizio Sarri launched a series of attacks on each other in the media. The two men met last Sunday in the capital derby, which ended in a draw. But once again, the two men were at loggerheads. But in a very friendly context. It was Lazio’s coach who lit the fuse.
“We had already met before the match. I said to him, ‘You really are a pain in the ass,’ and he replied, ‘In that case, so are you. I don’t like dealing with Mourinho talking in the press, but as a person he is excellent,” Sarri commented to DAZN. Mourinho responded. “Sarri? He’s always very nice to me. We joked a bit before the match about what we said to each other during the week. We also said we loved each other. After the match, we said to each other that neither of us would cry or laugh,” revealed the Portuguese coach.
